The Mole that has no luindoiv for tie fan, “ Finds jet a light that teadi to genial love.” f A GREAT part of mankind are held in bond- age to one ab'urd culb.ra or anoUier—but ^rhaps a more ridiculous and niifchievous deviaii- on from the laws of nature and reai'on, never ob tained than the Celibacy of the Cleigy. 'I'his is a trite fubjeft of declamation ; but all that has been written, or could be urged againit it, would have proved ineffedhial,had notthe rays of political know ledge recently opened the eyes of mankind to their true interell. Their is now a fair prolpeft that this intolerable yoke will be taken olF the clergy of the RAman Catholic church ; and the door ol honour able love, and connubial felicity, be opened to them in common with their fcllow-nien. “ Marriage is honourable in allIt is an inllitiliion wile, politic, and benevolent initfelf—and leatls to all the tender charities tliat knit the family of njankind in the hap- pied unities ol love, concord, and peace. Whin I behold a well-regulated happy family, the objeit inJpires tlie moll plealing I'enlalioiis and refl edions. I call my eyes back to the period when 'the parents of a lovely progeny firfl commenced the acquaintance tlult has proveil the origin of fo many agreeable circumRances. Happy- moments of love, honour, and mutual contidcnce !—How refined and delightful the fweet intercourfe of kindied minds ! Their mutual aitr.adions, cemented by the facred bonds of wedlock, have gathered llrenglli with ad vancing years—-and, their lad fctling fun fliall go down in peace. Wlien this conneflion is Ibuiuied on proper principles, it is not fuhjed to thofe pertur bations and depreflions of fpirits, which itndci' the marriage ftateajcRto tli« ihoughtlefs libertine, and make the timid waver and doubt till tinie,extinguini- tngthc'beftpalltohs m the human benrt, creates art indiiference either topleufingor being plealed. The cares of life in every ltHtc«« ltf5ny—In the mar- ried'ftate they are divided, as they incrcafe—and , the pleafures of life are doubled—the mind retains its natural foftnefs and generous fym|)athy—and having a variety of objeiis to engage its attention, thofe ohjeids interell its feelings, and animate its ex ertions, till its felicity con/ills m living to the hap- ' pinefsofits cbnncidions, and of mankind. Society derives its bellfecurlty from the attachnlents which originate in the ties of family. Fathers, motlierst and children are the fureft and bell pledges of fideli ty to the comraonw'calth—to thofe endearing appel lations notliing is indifferent, that has reference to the peace and profjlerity, the misfortune or niifery of their country ; but the voluntary exiles from the temple of Hymen, while they violate the laws of rcafon and fociety, in palling through life in the fo- litary walks of b.iehelorifm, lofc by degrees the belt a'Feaions—they conirUft a temper of inll-nfibility to the happinefsor infelicity of their fellow-creatures ; and from neglcdling and being neglefloi! by the he/f prfcr of our fpecies, they iie|nii e a inorofe and cenib- riou'- dirpoliiion—and making war witli the woild by dieir contemni for Its maxims and cuRums, they always come olT fconJ h.Jh The follraiina ohfervathns on the great Importanre and n/’/V/Vvu/'Nl-wsPXPFPr, atee\frnOed from the firf number of the STAR—.j paper'pub- lijhedby Mr. Loring Andrews, at Stockbridtre; MalTachufetts. . I T is owing in a great degree to the want of in formation, that the people are fo often ftifpicious of their rulers, and entertain the idea that the in- tcreft of the people and the interell of the govern ment is unconneiSed ; and that the latter have no objeft but to aggrandize thetnfelves, acquire unli mited power, and lay heavy burdens upon their con- ftltuents, which they themfe! ves mean not to feel the iveight of.

Thc'coiii t ot Naples has lately flarted claims to Uie prorvince ot' Albania, bordering on the Aalrhitic;' and now in poffelT-on of-the Turk;. This appears to the court bf Naples to be tlic moR favourable moment to urge thofe claims, when the Poi te is engaged in acontcR with Rullla and Auf- f-ia. * Thofe claims, fnpporied even by the whole of the forces of the Two Sicilies, would nof grcMtly enibar- ! rafs the Turks, if the king of Spain was to Rand netiter. But his Catholic Majefly, we are inform,cd, has caufed it to be lignified to the'Portc, that he will fup- pnn the pretenlions of his brother the king of the Two Sicilies, in afi'eriiiig the ancient right of the crown to the province of Albania. P.draR cfa letter from Paris, dated Ofiober 16. “ The inhabitants of this city w ho happen to ihink that the mob tire not infallible, fcaicely dare open thcii lips in j.ublic about aifaiis.

The poor man feeing fome people advance towards him wiiliftiry in their looks, and crying “ ariftocnite !” inllantly ran into a lioufe for Rielter, and afeaped by a back door. Tlic mob foon followed, dragging wit an Abbe who happened to be in the fame bottfe. They roared out tliat tlic-y had g6t the Abbe le Roi. and ftvore tlicy v oitld im- rnediately hang him.

'1 hey Rill continued deaf to his do- ^ durations, and were juR on the point ot hanging him’, when the Marquis delay Fayette arrived. Having requeued they would fulpend the execution for a few d minutes, he alked what was the Abkc’e crime, 'i hc Q mob replied, lie was the Abbe le Roi, tlic friend of > the ariltocracy, and the enemy of the people. The « Marquis told them they were miliaken: he fai 1 he (J very well knew the perfon of tlie Abbe le Roi, and he alfured them upon his honour, tliat the pcrlon whom they were going to hang was not the man. He faid he did not know who the Abbe then pivleat w’as, but he declared he was not the Abbvle Roi. A Oa this declaration of the Marquis, the poor Abuc £ was releafed ; hut had this nobleman arrived a quar- Q ter of an hour later, he would have found the murdered. Such is the government which prevails T In this city. y “ There is reafon to believe that the majority of the members of the alfcmbiy are extremely at erfe sj to go to Paris, fearing their liveS to be in danger : J but the I cpcalcd invitations of the Parifians, who S will not bo c.-.fy without them,at length determined their removal, though not before the alfcmbiy had j i received a forntal deputation firm the commens of c Paris, who engaged loanfwerfor tliepeiloiial fecu- tity of every member.” ^ 'I'o liiow how mucli more the purlbit of a Fox is^ pretc'iicd to the purl'uit of religion, a church was^ . lately erctflcd at a village inSulfolk, the coll of wl.i. h pi was two thoufand pounds.
